This paper uses data collected using in-depth, semi-structured interviews to examine utilization of maternal health care services among two rural and urban populations of Pune and Mumbai in Maharashtra, India. The study aims to identify key social, economic and cultural factors influencing women's decisions to use maternal health care and the places used(More)

Here, "of general moduli" means that there is a countable union V of subvarieties of the space pN of surfaces of degree d in p3, such that the statement Pie(S) = Z holds for S ~ p N _ V. Noether, it would seem, stated this theorem but never completely proved it. Instead, he gave a plausibility argument, based on the following construction 1 : let ,~.g be(More)

Preface During the 1996-97 academic year, Phillip Griffiths and Robert Bryant conducted a seminar at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ, outlining their recent work (with Lucas Hsu) on a geometric approach to the calculus of variations in several variables. The present work is an outgrowth of that project; it includes all of the material(More)
